There are few things more powerful than creating something – especially when that something is a product of your own imagination. The Ontario Science Centre’s new hands-on learning space, Inventorium, encourages visitors to express their creativity and demonstrate their ingenuity by providing them with an opportunity to bring their ideas to life.

Created to celebrate Ontario’s sesquicentennial, Inventorium is a dynamic, fun space for the whole family. Visitors are invited to roll up their sleeves and put their creativity to the test through a variety of engaging, interactive experiences that spark curiosity. Enjoy a cup of joe* brewed by The Maker Bean while contemplating the thought-provoking question etched on your coaster. Make tiny drawings using a stereoscopic microscope. Design an insect and have it laser cut before your very eyes, presented in partnership with Steamlabs. Inventorium offers something for aspiring innovators of all ages! 

Researched, designed and fabricated in-house by the Science Centre's scientists, designers, writers and craftspeople, Inventorium highlights the best of making by mixing art and design with science, technology, engineering and math. Through creativity, collaboration and critical thinking, anything is possible. Ignite your imagination at Inventorium and see where your curiosity takes you.

Inventorium is included with general admission.
